    hahaha
    people find out about my leg surgery (rebuilt ankle tendons), and they quickly assume that it was from riding my motorcycle/scooters... when it happened BEFORE I even started riding! Actually it was because of my surgery that I started riding - especially on scooters! The sitting position in a car would cause me a lot of pain, especially to drive. Sitting position on a scooter is comfy and did not cause me pain, plus left leg does nothing on a scooter. :-)

    Hope you're back on your feet soon Mike!

    I'm going to have to pass... I'm just not getting rid of this damned bug! It hasn't hit me hard - but it won't go away either! Just enough to make me feel tired. :kboom

    If I feel better by the afternoon I might slab it up to Newcomb's.

    Did anybody tell you guys that a KLR is not an MX bike. Casing a double will blow the seals everytime.

    See you FF's (Flyin' Fruitcake?) when the sun comes up, and the birds are singing.

    A little MX trivia.

    Who was the 70's MX racer from Haiwaii nicknamed the "Flyin’ Hawaiian"?

    John DeSoto. He was one of my MX heros, and convinced me I should ride a CZ. I'm glad he convinced me, that thing was a rocket, after thinking my DT-175 Enduro was the baddest bike around. It's also why it had a coffin shaped tank, because with that suspension it was always a near death experience.

    I was doing a shakedown run on my WR tonight & damn if I forgot I needed to get a new turn signal relay.. :eek1
    Now I'm old enough to remember when they used to sell them at every corner gas station on Earth. But when I asked the cadet's behind the counter if they had them, I just got the deer in the headlights look.. uhhhh, a what??? :huh
    I guess most vehicles don't use them up anymore.. or maybe I should post this in JoMamma

    DAMN Nice night for a full moon ride though!
    I didn't want to stop! :freaky

    See you all @ 8am

    AGREED!
    ..a week ago I thought the weather was gonna be shite.
    I didn't think we were gonna have this springtime surprise down here..
    well, that and my bike's electrical wiring has proven not to be reliable for night excursions.

    This should be really great weather for the crew in baja though!!
    Cheers Y'All
